    Keep the picture coming. You have a great collection.

    You should post your pictures from stephenkingcollector.com, especially that 'Salem's Lot 1st state DJ.

    Yes, and of those pristine copies of Night Shift and The Stand (my retinas still hurt from the insanely white dust jackets )

    Good to see you here, by the way!

    Welcome to TDT.com. Looks like a great collection.

    As RF recommends, you can place photos directly into your posts (rather than as attachments) if you upload them to a host first.

    Looking forward to seeing more.

    You need to have 5 posts before you can see them. (This is a security thing) 2 more posts and you will see them.

    I asked the bookstore owner if I could have it and she said yes, they were going to throw it out anyway. Right place, right time!

    This is the one I thought folks here would be most interested in - can you tell us some of its background? Where you got it, etc? The fact that it doesn't have a crease in the spine REALLY intrigues me!

    Judging by the bookshelves on top of the tall bookcase, I'm guessing you don't live in earthquake country!

    I love it that you have a great paperback collection as well! My girlfriend and I collect the older UK NEL paperbacks with the great cover art.

    We also have quite some Signet 1st edition paperbacks. But nothing like your awesome PB collection! Let alone your hardcovers.... I think you just nested yourself comfortably among the other top collectors on this forum

    Hey ur2nd - You have some really cool stuff ( and I love that Wonder Woman statue !! ) - you should think about uploading the pictures to the gallery and linking them here so we can see them in a larger format.

    Let me know if you need any help!

    We have a wonderful Member's Gallery for pictures!

    Look up on the top of the page - it's the second button in from the left.

    You can upload your photos and then link them here so they show up in larger format.

    Feel free to PM me if you want some help.

    It's like ImageShack and all those other hosting websites, except you don't need to sign up for anything (well, you already did, when you registered to this forum ).

    I've been seriously collecting for, damn!, 40 years! But I was born a negative 60 years ago so I'm only 20.
    I'm missing some of the early 1st British PBs, but have most of them. I stopped collecting the British editions a few years ago because of the expense, but maybe I'll catch up on those one of these days. I've also been a little dissapointed with some of King's books lately (don't hit me!), so that kind of made me not pursue some of his other editions.
    As for Salem's Lot, I just happened to be in the right place at the right time. I think I paid about $250 for it and had absolutely no idea of it's rarity. But it was nice to find out!
    The thing that interests me with the 'Salem's Lot is that without the crease in the spine.... it wouldn't have come from the Doubleday art department stash.

    So does this mean that some of the $8.95 jackets weren't clipped and WERE available at retail outlets?

    Thoughts??
